Abstract:
This research studies Industrial Noise and Psychological Well-Being among Employees in Industrial Units. The objective of this research was to verify if significant difference exists in psychological well-being of employees as per the category of noise they are subjected to. Multiple industrial units in Chinchwad MIDC, Bhosari MIDC and Chakan industrial area were chosen for the research. The sample was 100 male employees for Low Intensity Noise category (0 to 75 Decibel) and 100 male employees for High Intensity Noise category (above 75 Decibel). Decibel Meters developed to answer to the Indian standard for sound level measurement, issued by Bureau of Indian Standards, such as IS 15575 (Part 1): 2005 and IS 15575 (Part 2): 2005, were used to measure noise levels in industrial units and select the sample according to the noise exposure. Data was collected in the form of data entry sheets of Ryff’s Psychological Well-Being Scale (RPWB), 42-item version; to be filled by the employees. The results indicated that significant difference exists in all six domains of Ryff’s Psychological Well-Being Scale, viz. Autonomy, Environmental Mastery, Personal Growth, Positive Relations, Purpose in Life and Self Acceptance, among employees in industrial units with high intensity noise and in industries with low intensity noise
